CHIROPRACTIC DURING PREGNANCY

Every year, more and more moms-to-be turn to chiropractors for support throughout their pregnancies. Chiropractic adjustments are gentle, specific maneuvers that remove tension, stress, and interference to the nervous system. When the nervous system is free of all interference, it means that mom and baby are aligned for optimal function and development throughout the entire pregnancy.

Some of the other benefits of chiropractic care that pregnant women often report are:

  • Better and more comfortable sleep, especially in the last trimester;

  • Fewer aches and pains as the body changes to accommodate the growing fetus;

  • Decreased mean labor time;

  • Optimal fetal positioning for delivery;

  • Fewer necessary medical interventions during labor and delivery.

What pregnant woman wouldn’t want to experience the benefits listed above?!

 

CHIROPRACTIC FOR BABIES

Your baby deserves that right to health starting right from birth!

A misaligned spine can occur as a result of the strain of the birthing process. The signs are not always immediately obvious, but a misaligned spine can have critical affects on the growth, development, and health of your baby. A spine that is properly aligned allows for the brain and nervous system to function optimally; expressing 100% health and potential. 

Dr. Starr is specifically trained to locate areas of the spine that are misaligned and causing nerve interference. Through gentle, specific maneuvers, she can adjust your baby’s spine, thereby removing the interference to your baby’s nervous system. These adjustments are done with the gentlest of touch. Imagine that to adjust an infant is as gentle as feeling for the ripeness of a tomato.

 Having a fully functioning nervous system is always the best idea to ensure the healthiest life possible for your baby!

For those babies who are already expressing difficulty, here is a list of conditions infants face that have been proven to respond to chiropractic adjustments:

  • Colic

  • Ear, Nose, and Throat Infections

  • Difficulty with breast feeding

  • Chronic vomiting
